This Week in Magic #6
Here we are again, Friday. It's been a fairly light week in terms of Magic writing, especially from bloggers. Let's look back over it and see what we have here.
I should also mention that it has been drawn into question whether I am biased or not, given that there is a disparity of mentions for Wizards, StarCityGames, ChannelFireball and ManaNation. I attribute the disparity to the fact that those four sites provide the vast majority of Magic the Gathering content on the web. I read the blog sites, but altogether I believe they produce less than any one of these sites.
